WOO HOOO!! 43,140 on my second try. Use the mouse and click to flap wings. That bird keeps flying and bouncing off...etc.

20,003 on my first try!


Siouxie's very good at turkey-flings.

You win, Dave. I got a lousy 17,452.

I mean 62,891

This is just cruel. I'm tellin' Heather Mills.

hehe...yep Annie!

LMAO and now 73,029!!! 4th try

pouts. I'm not authorized to view that site. I take it flying turkeys are involved? As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

Annie, I guess turkeys CAN fly.

psychic simul case!!!

Thanks Siouxie! Now, will you make me a sammich before I take a nap?

Not well, casey. Not well.

Oh, they're plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this!

*snork* casey! such a classic!

ummm... all it does for me is open a new window.

Come on judi, you can come over here and pout with me in the corner.

judi, you have to wait till it loads. That happened to me too at first.

In other words, do NOT follow the instructions on the screen and "click". It'll load up eventually.

27,359 and i ended up in a bucket of gravy?

the other game, turkey to go is fun too!

LOL, Casey. That's what I was thinking, too.

Oooh, 75,804. And towards the end there, I was really not doing anythign to control it.

Huh. I just tried to open it again and got directed to The Home of Lenny Loosejocks. If y'all need me, I'll be checking to see how loose Lenny's jocks really are.

I got 14,663 on my fourth attempt.

My second attempt I shot straight up into the air and my turkey fried on re-entry and made a crater when it landed. I only netted a 1852 on that one, but it was worth it!

-272. I think I didn't do it right.

Boy, I can't tell you how much enhancement my productivity has gained from this!

42,694 first try. Off to try Kristie's method and launch Thursday's lunch into orbit.

Thanks, Schade. My office employees won't be getting paid this week but I'm having LOADS of fun!!

83,650... and now the turkey's sitting in a pan of gravy like it's a hot tub!

An outstanding Thanksgiving diversion, Mr. Barry, and thank you! Surely you’ll recall from your 5th grade social studies class that this game pays tongue-in-cheek homage to that glorious first Thanksgiving feast of October 8, 1621, in which hapless “Pilgrims” -- from the Latin peregrinus, or “unable to feed oneself due to Puritan-based genetic stupidity” -- invited the local Wampanoag Indians to a celebratory harvest feast by firing live turkeys at them from a distance of more than 250 yards, a new Colonial record for slingshot-fired fowl which buried Sir Walter Raleigh’s 209-yard effort on the island of Bermuda in, oh, let’s say 1587. Of course, members of The Virginia Company™ (“Look, A Virgin Continent! Let’s Exploit It!”) long contested Raleigh’s record, as the chicken he fired into a group of Afro-Caribbean natives was rumored to be possessed of illegal quantities of “voodoo.”

The Wampanoag retaliated against this unprovoked turkey bombardment by teaching the Pilgrim settlers how to grow corn, which now accounts for more than 98% of the average American’s diet and 100% of our Alternative Energy, at least until the Willie Nelson French-Fry Burning Diesel Engine and Deep-Fat Fryer is launched some time in 2017.

I've had the gravy, the crater...and the burnt to a crisp turkey.

He has to flap so hard 'cause he's got no feathers!


oh and I just got it in the jello lol

And and personal best at 91,356!! made a nasty crater too!

LOL, Steve - I noticed that, too! Funny.

Good one Rick! I can't seem to get past about 25,000.

The trick us to get it to eat the corn so that it gives it more flapping power.

Ah, Elvis - how we've missed you!

Damn you, Schade!! I. must. work. NOW.

Siouxie - I thought your days of flings with turkeys were over.

Annie, I guess I still like to gobble every once in a while ;-P


How do you collect corn? If I only had kid to teach me this stuff. I still can't record a DVD, or figure out remotes. Hopeless.

ubetcha, as it flies...it "eats" the corn and gets more "power"


I can't even type today. Geesh.

Sorry, Siouxie. If it's any consolation, I've been just as productive.


Anyone else make to the can of Coors yet?

LOL Annie. I think blurkie and the turkey are fightin' for it.

Quittin' time! latersssss

126,643. I am dominating! Luckily a pie broke my fall from the stratosphere.

138,149. I'm a corn-eating machine!


I am still at work :^(

Utah State University may not have a great football team (118th out of 119) but we can fling turkeys! 195,476

-8576. *Negative*. I don't know whether to consider it a blessing or a curse to be so inept at slacking...

man I really hate it when I can't tell what's going on.

WOOP! I think I've hit my personal best. 159,333

You're all FIRED!

Yay! 121,766! Woo-hoo!


I'm giving it 2 tries:

1) 61,464
2) 247,876

I wonder what units those are in? Feet? That would make the second go almost 47 miles... not too shabby for a half-roasted turkey.

Okay, best ever: 372,646. The force was with me.

409,612 - stretch the buzzard all the way to the left horizontally and reach nirvana...

60,878 on the third try.
*goes back to enhancing productivity*

198,998! I kid you most definitely NOT!

Okay, anyone who got over 200,000 needs to grow up and get a life. For anyone who got less than that, NEENER!!

175995. Woot!

This is kind of like the earlier "productivity enhamster" posted some time back, only "for dummies." The hamster game was WAY cooler. I'm just saying.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

This is a "real" productivity enhancer :-)


A friend sent it to me and I am much more productive now... But it kinda takes the fun out of slacking...
